Study a Bored?

One of the early themes I picked up on during this study abroad is that there are many themes to be picked up on through the recurring connections we make in different areas of our lives. Moving on from that redundant and circular sentence, I’d like to make note of another recurring theme that I’ve…

A Scene From Dublin

I looked into her eyes. They were so deep. I’m sure there was an end to them somewhere, but I could not see it. I ignored the reflection of myself in her pupils and instead was drawn into the intertwining shades of brown and amber forming a complex web of natural beauty that mirrored the…

All day was spent on making a video to represent our company to a client. The goal was to finish it by the end of the day. This was a huge struggle because, for me, the work I do gets better and better the more time I have to do it. Once I commit to…

Riding the Wave

Charlie really likes waving at people in a ridiculous manner to intentionally embarrass them. He sticks his arm straight up into the air and then flops his hand around like a fish out of water. He was doing it this morning at breakfast. He explained he does this when he knows he won’t see any…
